I have received notice from our editor that Post Scripts is the last truly active blog, as started with NorCal blogs. Tina and I have had a lot of fun doing this thru the years, it’s been incredible. And the good part is, we’re not done yet!
Currently, our page views are about 10,000 per month. That’s pretty darn good. I’m not sure why we don’t have hundreds of commenters, but maybe I should not complain, because we couldn’t handle it if we did!
I believe we have endured and grown because of the quality and diversity of our readers and commenters…and that would be y-o-u. You J. Soden, RHT, Peggy, Joe, Jim, Soaps, Harold, Pie, Libby, Jim, Chris, Dewey and many others over the years. You are our co-writers and co-pundits and you make PS entertaining and thought provoking. On behalf of Tina and myself, we profoundly thank you all.
Oh, and a big PS – We would encourage anyone out here with a good topic that needs writing to do it here. We’re a free speech podium and we would love to see what you have to say!
WOW! Great stats! And with Jack and Tina doing the job, it’s not hard to see why.
Glad to be a part of it, and MANY THANX for the time and effort you’ve expended to make it happen!
There is a reason for this.
From the You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up Department —
Hillary Clinton moved to take the heat off Harvey Weinstein Friday by outright calling President Trump a “sexual assaulter” – while roundly dismissing past allegations of sexual impropriety against her husband as old news.
This is one of the reasons I am not a feminist but instead an “independent woman.” I gave up on the feminist movement when the feminists did that hit job on Clarence Thomas. They seem to want it both ways. They get to behave and talk like their hedonistic male counterparts (after all they have been “liberated”) but they don’t want any responsibility in it. Hillary is the worst!
NewsBusters, “Wash Post: Yeah, Weinstein Was a Monster, But Such Great Movies!”
This industry has been pushing the envelope on sleaze/porn and profiting from it for some time. The stars and their media supporters have both participated in and applauded as the standards of decency have eroded.
And the so-called “feminists” have been deafeningly silent on the way Muslim women are treated, both here and abroad.
Glad to be a member of the PS family. Every day I look forward to seeing what Jack and Tina have posted and the comments from everyone else. Thank you both for keeping it going!
Made my day when Pie returned. Missed you. Welcome back!
But are they thinking dumping NorCal? That would be terrible … and let me know where you go … if you go.
I would also like to know.
Thanks for the appreciation, Jack. And I must also thank you and Tina; this was the first blog I spent a lot of time on where I usually disagreed with the majority of posters, and I learned a lot from it.
Thank you Chris, that is high praise indeed and it is most appreciated.
Libby, thanks for the thoughts, but no we’re safe for now.
Jack we’ve had a lot of fun and learned a lot.
Do you recall the date you created Post Scripts?
I’ve been trying to figure out exactly how long I’ve been doing this and all I could come up with was presidential terms…nearly a year of Trump…all of Obama (8 years) and most (or all?) of GWB. Incredible!
No Tina, I can’t recall the exact day, only that it was about 14 years ago. It started by way of a personal invitation from the Enterprise Record to help get this new form of communication going, that’s all I can recall.
